My research aims to make AI programming easier for all developers, ranging from academic researchers to industry practitioners. Towards this goal, I work on designing a high-level AI programming framework that abstracts away low-level programming details and improves automation and reusability, while minimizing abstraction penalty such as flexibilty and efficiency. Observing that the advancement in programming frameworks in traditional software technologies (e.g. TypeScript, Django) has significantly accelerated their adoption, I believe we will see the similar trend in AI soon, hopefully led by my research!
In technical terms, my research lies in the intersection of:
◆ programming models for machine learning
◆ automated machine learning
◆ data-centric AI
Previously, I completed MS in Language Technologies at Carnegie Mellon University under the guidance of Jaime Carbonell. Before that, I earned BS in Electrical Computer Engineering & Mathematics (double major) from Seoul National University. I had also spent time as a research intern at Microsoft in 2021.
